Searching for a Screen Door with Dog Door

If you have a pet that you allow to go out and come in on its own, you’re going to want a screen door with a dog door. Screen doors with dog doors built in allow you the fresh air of a screen door with the convenience of a pet door.

They’re no more difficult to install than a standard screen door. There are two main types of pet door installation available for screen doors, which are:

  • centered in the screen
  • attached to the frame in the corner

Which one you choose will depend on a few different variables, including the size of your pet and expected use. There are pros and cons to each installation type, so you’ll need to evaluate which is better for your needs.

Making the Mount

So, which installation should you choose? Mounting the screen in the corner, where it's attached on two sides to the frame of the door, makes it sturdier. This is great for homes where you have a larger or more rambunctious dog or where your dog door will be getting a lot of use. These can also be installed with stabilizer bars, which makes the dog door even more secure.

However, mounting the dog door in this way will require you to drill into the door, so if you're not comfortable doing that, you might want to opt for the screen-mounted dog door. These usually require tools no more complicated than a knife, a hammer, and a flat surface, so they're a little bit more user-friendly. They're also usually cheaper than frame-mounted dog doors.

Measure for Measure

As with any kind of door installation, making accurate measurements is the first step to home improvement success. To figure out how high your installation should be, first measure your dog from the ground to the highest part of its back. That's the basic measurement when you're picking your screen, but if you've got a portlier pet, it doesn't hurt to measure its width as well, so you know your pup can fit through the door.

In any case, give them adequate width. It's not enough that they can squeeze through the door; they must have enough room to do so without scraping their sides every time. And speaking of adequate space, if you're installing a frame-mounted dog door, you might need a larger door than usual. Keep in mind that flap length should include your dog's measurement, the threshold, and at least 1” of extra space.

Outside In

Like other screen doors, a screen door with a dog door not only lets in ventilation, but can also let in other less desirable aspects, like bugs. You can cut down on visits from outsiders by choosing a flap that closes well. Some flaps close with magnets, which not only keeps out pests, but also helps the flap stay shut when it's windier outside.

Of course, you can also solve this problem by keeping your exterior door closed. It's not a good idea, though, to keep it closed if your dog is outside. They could damage the screen or the dog door trying to get back in. And speaking of damage, the existing screen in your door should be adequate, but if you've got a pretty lively dog, you might want to invest in sturdier screen material.
